Review: Making Monsters

Author: Joe Turk
Website: http://joeturkstudio.com/
Genre: Satirical Dystopian Scifi (fictional U.S.)

Joe Turk’s quirky dystopian novel was an interesting, unpredictable read. From the first scene to the last, the odd array of characters badger and manipulate each other within a world that has quite obviously gone south. The U.S. has been reorganized into corporate states which are neck-deep in corruption and hell-bent on depleting the earth’s resources.

Hiding out in the middle of a slum, one strange little man collects a ragtag group of “experts” and presses them into a scheme to overthrow the hierarchy. The antics of the comical set of conspirators play out around Rick’s cloak and dagger plans, but the absurdly horrific events around them spin wildly out of control before anything substantial can be accomplished. Human genetic mutations rampage, monstrous worms rise up out of deep fractures in the earth, and the country’s highest military circle unleashes nuclear weapons against the backstabbing president and the population at large.

If you have a taste for the pathetically absurd, this twisted tale will be right up your alley. Well done, Joe!
